When I am watching a non-HD program the screen is expanded where I can not see the score or ticker-tape that is running at the bottom of the screen. Example: when I am watching a football game in non-HD I often can't see the small box at the top of the screen that shows the score. I also can not see the scores that run in ticker-tape fashion on the bottom of the screen. However, if the game is in HD I do not have a problem seeing the box score and scores running on the bottom of the page. I have tried to play with the picture mode (cropping, zoom etc) but am not having any luck with adjustments.
Normallly, if the picture size button on the remote for the television does not achieve the desired affect, then, a cable box or a satelite box is where the change needs to be made. For example: A Motorola Cable box needs to be set up to go to a wide screen or zoom when an analog signal is detected. Some Dish Network boxes have Size buttons on their remotes and also in their main menu. It's difficult to determine the repair without knowing the types of the peripherals. Hope this helps.

Make sure you are in the correct input. Did the installer connect the cable box to the television in two places? If so you'll want to choose the correct input of the two. Also make sure your cable box is set to the correct resolution for your television set i.e. if you have a 720p set it to 720p not 1080i and vice versa. Look for an hd zoom# button or format button or aspect button on your cable or satellite remote to adjust the picture size. If it is not on the remote the picture adjustment setting is in the menu/setup of your cable box or satellite box.
after searching around on both remotes for me...im with verizon. Using my verizon remote under... settings-video settings-sd override...then into stretch mode fixes problem! Hope this helps anyone else with same problem!
You should adjust the aspect ratio on your cable box. Depending on your cable company there should be an aspect/HD zoom button. If this does not work go into the TV settings using the "menu" button and try to find a reference to aspect. Make sure it's set to 16:9 normal vs. stretch. You can contact Total COntrol Remotes (www.totalcontrolremotes.com) for help with this kind of issue.
It sounds like the TV is in overscan mode, thus chopping off part of the screen. Check your manual to see how you can change this mode. The mode also might be in 'Zoom', thus chopping off part of your picture
Dilon, 311's have no aspect ratio adjustment and is not able to switch from the standard 4:3 setting therfore if it is connected to a TV with a large screen the TV has to stretch the picture to fill the screen thus cutting off portions of the picture. I suggest you get a HD receiver as they will be able to change the format and aspect ratio but even these make some sacrifices to fill the screen as well. Most notable of the losses will be the ticker tape at the bottom of the screen where sports scores usually are displayed. Thhis is all a result of the plethora of screen sizes on the market and will not be resolved anytime soon that I am aware. Dish has a 211 which is a one room HD receiver, 612 which is a one room dual tuner receiver with DVR, 222 which is a dual tuner two room receiver with HD capability to the first location and SD to the second, 622 and 722 which are both dual tuner two room DVR receivers with HD to the first location and SD to second. I am sorry I could not bear better news but I wanted to thank you for using Fix Ya and if you need further assistance please let me know. Jim
Unfortunately if you chose to view the non HD channels in wide screen format, you are going to have the top and bottom of the screen cut off. Eventually this will not be a problem when everything goes to digital. However presently non HD channels are presented in 3:2 ratio where as HD is 16:9, So your choice really is to view them with the lines on either side for now.
I do not have an answer for the white flickering lines.
To get the BEST picture out of your 1080p unit I highly recommend using HDMI cables to hook it up.
